i just checked my email and noticed a message from my mother concerning my last post. she pointed out that what they are doing is not incredible. i had forgotten about an incident that she reminded me of. when i was much younger and living in dothan, alabama we could hear the screams of a mother two blocks over. she was screaming because he son had decided to skateboard while holding onto his mother’s car bumper. she didn’t know this and backed up instead of pulling forward. the thought of a mother being the means of her own child’s death is not something i want to remember.
so what they are doing is not incredible. it’s stupid.
but it would be cool if done by professional stunt people under a controlled environment.
